I don't have 4 GB of memory, and yes, I have experimented with 32 bit install vs 64, I also installed fedora on some emachines with 64 bit processors and I see that x86_64 is running nicely.  Except for this machine.  I actually have thought about it, but wouldn't there be a differnt way to troubleshoot this before making this change?

ie., try differrent boot parameters like noacpi, acpi=off or other kernel parameters to see if it would make any difference?.  At the moment I am running Slax and it(the machine) is running great.  So I would not know what is causing the trouble?  I would like to try some parameters to see if it would help, before the drastic move to 32 bit.
